Dodge Charger SRT Super Bee

In the next few lines we will try to express the feelings a car enthusiast and specialist felt while driving the new 2013 Dodge Charger SRT Super Bee in Detroit. The model receives power from a 6.4-liter V8 engine capable of generating 470 horsepower and 470 lb. ft. of torque. According to the man, the 392 HEMI engine feels much more powerful than its numbers suggest and apparently Chrysler estimates that the car will manage to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in the high-four-second range and will also pass the quarter mile after the 13-second mark. To transfer the output to the road, the engineers have equipped the model with a 5-speed automatic transmission.

The driver also said that shifts happen quickly, both up and down the range and because there are only five ratios, there is less hunting around between cogs. When it comes to fuel economy the car is capable of using 23 mpg on the highway and 17 mpg on a combined cycle. The steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters are there, but the gearbox felt best when left to its own devices. During the quick spin, the driver never felt it was a car easy to handle because of its weigh, but still it was not nearly ad tough to wrangle as one can imagine. The Brembo brakes keep everything under control and so the traction does not have to be turned off.

To transfer the output to the road, the engineers have offered the new Dodge Charger SRT Super Bee dual-five-spoke 20-inch wheels. The price of the model he has tested was set for $44.435 and that is without the premium features, of course. So the model did not include HID headlamps, navigation or the awesome leather SRT thrones. The new model actually reminds us of the Charger SRT8. Source: autoblog
